Seattle has really been ramping up for the 2013 North American Cycle Courier Championships by hosting events and races that will help fund the NACCC. This means there is no shortage of bike happenings in the Emerald City. If you plan on travelling this summer to race, Seattle would be the place to do that since it seems each week offers a new and creative alleycat. Check this one from Mobius.

Here is a chance to win some cash every Thursday. Some Seattle messengers have organized a weekly crit that takes place at the Monorail Espresso stand at 7:30. The winner takes home half of the entry purse and the other half goes towards a good cause.
Starting this Thursday Marshall (monkey boy) is throwing small races downtown as a fundraiser to help Tom Chapel save his front teeth that got knocked out. There will be different kinds of small “dashes” such as crits, timetrials, and other types of races. It’s five dollars to enter. The winner will get half of the entry, second place gets free entry to the next weeks race and the other half goes directly towards Tom’s new grill. It should be fun.
Here are a couple things that are coming up in the next few weeks. Be sure to catch at least one!

Traffic Distribution and Soundtrack Paris are putting together an event series during Eurobike 2012. This would be a good time to start making travel plans!
In line with the world’s biggest bicycle trade show EUROBIKE (yes, it is 6 times bigger than Interbike) we are happy to invite you aswell to one of europeans biggest event dedicated to the fixed wheel.
From the 29th of August until the 2nd of September the FIXED DAYS 2012 will offer various actions you could perfectly combine with your bike-interest by visiting the huge bicycle exhibition – or just sweeten your holiday at the biggest lake of europe submontane of the alps which is really more than worth to visit and ride.
2012 we enhanced our last years programm. Beside the spectacular 200m sprint race on the trade show’s area, and the Fixed Gear Freestyle contest (both powered by Red Bull) in the closeby village of Immenstaad we have this year much more to offer: a Hexagram race for those who are fast and persistent, the explosive Goldsprint that some attended already last year, a Movie Screening including a crew-clip contest and a lot of smaller happenings.
And last but not least we decided to invite our (former fixed and now) freewheelers aswell and so we will have a big Polo-Tournament during the days.
In combination with taking a look onto all the exhibited upcoming bikes, latest parts and its framework programm (like the dirt-MTB contest or the famous Lakejump) at EUROBIKE the FIXED DAYS 2012 event is a must and a nice break from office for every bike lover.
Step to each section to experience more about the single events of the FIXED DAYS 2012 and don’t forget to register.
If you have any questions regarding accomodation, contest-rules or whatever – hit us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Please not that the FIXED DAYS 2012 is an unommercial event, nobody is making any profit out of it – it is all happening “just” for the love of the fixed ride. Thanks to all involved crews that help to organise each single-event.
See you at the Lake!

There are a lot of exciting things happening this week in the Emerald City.
FRIDAY: First up us our monthly fixed gear event Future Tense is on Friday. Over the past year it has steadily become more of a freestyle bike hang out session and less of a competition series. This month we are sharing the night with two other big happenings on Capitol Hill, the second being the launch party and alleycat to benefit the 2013 North American Cycle Courier Championships in Seattle that we here at ZLOG have been helping with alongside a rag-tag bunch of Seattle’s finest bike messengers. Also on Friday, the new Seattle skate shop Alive and Well will be hosing a grand opening party at HG Lodge featuring Dom Kennedy, be sure to hit that up if can.
Saturday: The Seattle Bike Expo is happening, although I wasn’t able to find a flier, there is a facebook event posted here with all of the info. Go Means Go will be hosting the after party in Freemont later that night, which should be a blast.
First, let’s have a watch and see what black Friday is all about (based on google search results).
Well, actually today is all about feeding the beast that is fueled on everyone’s hard earned cash (we call that an economy). Don’t go wasting money on 42″ tv’s that are only put in place to distract us from the real world. Instead, go out and support the small guys in the communities that give back. In this case I am talking about the fixed-gear community. It has grown over the years due to the lot of us feeding into the culture, and it will only continue to grow and give back in many positive ways. So as much as I hate to tell people to go out and consume, go do it, but remember don’t just feed any beast, feed our beast!
Now let’s get to all of the deals!
Continue reading to see a list of sales that are happening today.
This Friday is the last Future Tense of the year (we’re skipping December) so come out and kick it. Last month we did a freestyle shred session while the fast bikes met up and rode around the city.
